    1. 1
      Place the tomatoes in a large non-reactive pan (stainless steel or enamel). Heat gently to soften tomatoes. Run through food mill fitted with fine screen to remove seeds and skins.
    2. 2
      Return pulp and juice to the pan. If the tomatoes are juicy, simmer the sauce for atleast 1 hour. When you have a thick tomato juice, but not yet tomato sauce, add the garlic salt, salt, sugar and chili powder. Stir well.
    3. 3
      In a separate pan heat oil and add flour to make a roux. Blend 4 cups warm tomato juice to roux and mix well. Quickly stir roux paste into boiling tomato juice. Continue stirring to avoid lumps until mixture thickens. If too thick, add water until desired consistency is reached. Adjust seasonings. Ladle into hot jars and process 30 minutes in a water-bath canner.

      Unfortunately, canning products using flour or other starches to thicken them is known to be unsafe by contemporary standards. I would suggest making this without the flour and then thickening it as you open each jar for use, or using Clear Jel to thicken it, or freezing it instead of canning. For more information on canning safety, please visit the National Center for Home Food Preservation at

      I made this one last fall and forgot to submit my review...sorry! This one is really good and not at all hard to do. It was all gone long before the winter was over. Guess I'll make more this year because you can't get anything this good from a store. Thanx for sharing!

      This is one of our family's favorite canning recipes now. I tried this last summer and ended up canning tons of it! We will never buy it from the store again! I have had a lot of people ask for this recipe once they've tried it!
